Dr. Manmohan Singh
Hon’ble Prime Minister
Government of India
New Delhi
Dear Dr. Manmohan Singh ji,
A day after your initiative in calling a meeting of Chief Ministers of Maoist Affected States comes fresh evidence of the direct contacts and support to the Maoists by leaders of a party which is part of the ruling alliance and also represented in the Central Cabinet. I enclose a copy of the front page report published in Mail Today on July 16, which gives details of the links between an elected MP of the Trinamool Congress and the Maoists in the Nandigram area of West Bengal including the supply of arms and ammunition to the Maoists.
My Party has written to you with evidence of these links on an earlier occasion also. In view of the fresh disclosures, I hope the Central Government will show the political will to take appropriate action in the national interest.
With regards,
Yours sincerely,
(Brinda Karat)
